First published in 1900, Dom Casmurro, widely considered Machado de Assis's greatest novel and a classic of Brazilian literature, is a brilliant retelling of the classic adultery tale--a sad and darkly comic novel about love and the corrosive power of jealousy.

Bento Santiago, the wildly unreliable narrator of Dom Casmurro, believes that he has been cuckolded--he suspects that his wife has cheated on him with his best friend and that her child is not his. Has Capit�, his love since childhood, really been unfaithful to him? Or is the evidence of her betrayal merely the product of a paranoid mind?

"Deftly translated, Dom Casmurro is a book full of humor, sweetness and a tender melancholy--a book that deserves to be read." - Publishers Weekly
